Knowledge = Dividends

beach An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.     – Benjamin Franklin

 

Benjamin Franklin was a very smart man. If you haven’t read his autobiography I suggest you do so.

There’s a few things you could take away from this quote…

In today’s economy their is a dream or belief in getting rich while doing nothing is the apex of success (and hubris). We live in a society where we actually believe in something for nothing. But as the economy evolves faster and faster we will need to realize more and more that we are sending our hopes and dreams to wall street and Washington D.C. We might as well be sending them to Las Vegas because the odds are basically the same. When the economy changes we no longer adapt as a nation. Instead we refuse to learn, change and grow. Now our economy is so rigid and frail nothing short of 85 billion a month will maintain our addiction to ignorance. We need to value real knowledge instead of chasing the knowledge of “how to earn a living without really doing anything of substance”
